Globe1234 is aimed at diligent patients looking for doctors, and trying to understand incentives in the healthcare system.
It's also aimed at primary care physicians looking to find details about specialists' practice, when deciding where to refer patients having various conditions.
The site covers specialist doctors, generalist doctors, privacy, end-of-life planning, salt as a nutritional and practical issue, hospitals' financial position, government penalties and incentives. It has a large amount of information on Medicare, because of Medicare's pervasive influence on care.
The site editor is Paul Burke, an independent researcher who has managed and analyzed data for HUD, Congress' Office of Technology Assessment and the UN Development Program.
He is not financed by Medicare or the healthcare industry. There are links to some books with helpful information, but they do not generate fees for the site.
His career has focused on analysis of data.
